KQ stops flights to China over Coronavirus. The Aviation workers Union vividly demanded the management to stop operations to China to Minimize the chances of its union workers contracting the virus.

Kenya Airways (KQ) has halted flights to Guangzhou, China over the Coronavirus plague, coming just days after it said it was monitoring the situation.

In a statement, the airline said it had done so after deliberations with the government through the Ministries of Health and Foreign Affairs.

“Besides to our previous communication, we have temporarily suspended flights to and from Guangzhou effective January 31 until further notice. We, however, clarify that our service to Bangkok, Thailand remains operational,” the airline said Friday morning.

The move comes barely hours after its workers, through the Kenya Aviation Workers Union (Kawu), threatened to lead its members in boycotting work if KQ doesn’t stop flying to China in the next few days.

“We call upon the management of KQ to exhibit some element of human feeling sensitivity and immediately suspend all flights to and from China to avoid exposing its employees to the risk of contracting the virus,” said Secretary-general Moss Ndiema in a statement on Thursday
